Make your own asymmetrical ripple marks in sand

Have you tried this Earthlearningidea? If you found a sandstone rock like the one shown in the photo, would you know how the shapes had been formed? Find out by trying this activity - 'Sand ripple marks in a washbowl'. These ripple marks are asymmetrical; how do symmetrical ripple marks form? These are just two of the many types of sedimentary structures that can form in sand.
